RETURN TO PRACTICE NURSE
Were you once a registered nurse working with people when they are at their most vulnerable? Do you miss working in a caring and friendly team delivering high quality care? Would you like the opportunity to return to nursing but not sure if it is possible? Our Return to Practice programme could be what you are looking for!
Your nursing skills and experience are needed more than ever before. There has never been a better time to return to nursing and it is easier than you might think. Our Return to Practice scheme will support you back into the nursing profession delivering high quality person centred care. . As well as having your course fees paid, you’ll receive at least £500 to help with travel, childcare and book costs. You’ll also get help from mentors and tutors throughout your course to build your confidence and get you ready to come back. The length of your course will depend on how long you have been out of practice, but will take no longer than 12 months.
There are opportunities either at North Staffordshire Combined Healthcare NHS Trust covering Stoke-on-Trent and North Staffordshire or with Midlands Partnership Foundations Trust located in Staffordshire. We can discuss your preferences at interview.
